Virtual Public Participation

The Virginia Society of Health-System Pharmacists appreciates the Board of Pharmacy’s openness to public participation in Board items.  VSHP requests the Board to consider the addition of virtual attendance and virtual participation in public meetings of the Board of Pharmacy. We are a large state and many stakeholders may wish to hear the conversation of the Board members which is not always captured in the meeting minutes.  Additionally, outside the Town Hall opportunities for comment on specific items, a stakeholder may wish to make a virtual (verbal/audio) comment at the beginning of Board meetings and may not have representation available for the in-person option.  VSHP kindly requests notification if this does not fall under the public participation guideline scope with insight into the appropriate avenue.
